Count me in too - Meagan and Morgan are 6 months, but were premature.
They are just meeting the milestones one would expect from a 4 month-old.
It's super tough because by this time my first daughter was doing much more and we went through almost 2 months with the twins of just playing catch up. I am *really* excited about being able to sit up and play. They already love interacting with each other, and I imagine it's going to get to be tons more fun!
It's a task with a two year old and infant twins. Some days I think I'm going insane! We spend an afternoon a week driving to Starbucks and back so I can have a rare bit of caffeine and regain my cool. I feel like we totally crash Leche League and API meetings with the troop, so we've been a tad isolated lately. I don't see it improving on the cusp of flu/RSV season because I think we're planning to stick very close to home.
I am really fortunate to have a supportive husband and a mother's helper. I think I would be in no shape to care for my children without the vast amount of encouragement, help, and cheering I get from them.
I bow down to anyone handling infant twins plus a toddler, or more, alone!
Breastfeeding is going well. We ran into one of their nurses from their NICU stay and she couldn't get over how big they've gotten in six months. They still seem tiny to me, and their weight is something I fret over all the time - they are both right at 13 pounds and their lowest weights in the NICU were right at 4 pounds. There's plenty of pee and poop and they are happy campers, I'm just a natural worry wart!
For the most part, the girls sleep a 6-8 hour stretch each night. That has been a true lifesaver. I dealt with awful sleep deprivation with Rachel and very likely should've sought help for PPD. With the sleep and the pure amount of time that I gogogo, I haven't felt like I'm depressed this time around.
I think a support thread is awesome! I've heard this is the worst time, but I don't know about chasing three toddlers around a playground either!
